  1. Acceptance of this Purchase Order is conditional on Supplier's acceptance of these terms and conditions, which are final. Each shipment made by the Supplier shall be deemed to be only upon these terms and conditions notwithstanding any additional or different terms and conditions that may be contained in any acknowledgement, confirmation, invoice, or other form of the Supplier and notwithstanding Allis's act of accepting or paying for any shipment or similar act. This Purchase Order and these Terms and Conditions cannot be modified, altered, or rescinded except in writing and signed by both parties.
  2. Upon acceptance of this Allis Purchase Order, Supplier will acknowledge acceptance electronically or in writing giving a definite shipping date. If after acknowledgement of this Purchase Order the Supplier finds that the Products cannot be delivered within the term specified in the Purchase Order, the Supplier will promptly notify Allis and advise Allis of the revised delivery date. Allis shall have the option of terminating the Purchase Order without obligation for payment or of accepting the revised delivery date. If acknowledgement is not given to Allis within a reasonable time, the Purchase Order or any part hereof may, at Allis's option, be canceled.

If bill of lading or proof of shipment does not accompany invoice, Allis will pay invoice and take discount on date material is received at its plant even if the regular discount period is past. Packing slip is to be included in all shipments by Supplier. Allis's count will be accepted as final on all shipments not accompanied by a packing slip. Any applicable sales, use, or federal excise taxes will be shown separately on the invoice. Allis will not pay any additional taxes unless specifically agreed to in writing.

The price to be paid by Allis shall be either that stated on this Purchase Order, or the lowest prevailing net price now given to any other customer under similar conditions and in similar quantities.

Definitions. The term "Buyer" as used herein shall mean the individual, firm, partnership, corporation, limited liability company or entity to whom this sales order is addressed. The term "Seller" as used herein shall mean Allis Tool & Machine Corporation.

  1. Complete Contract. This sales quote and/or order contains the complete agreement between Buyer and Seller, and no course of dealing or usage of trade or actual course of performance shall be relevant to explain or supplement any term used herein, and all different terms and conditions proposed by Buyer are hereby expressly rejected. Any other oral agreement between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof shall be null and void. If Buyer shall use its own purchase order or other form to order from Seller, such form shall be used for convenience only and shall evidence Buyer's unconditional agreement to these terms and conditions. Any additional terms or conditions contained therein are objected to by Seller. Seller's failure to object to specific provisions contained in Buyer's orders or other communications shall not be deemed a waiver of the terms and conditions herein. Agreement to these terms and conditions can be made by any commercially reasonable means, including Buyer's return of a duplicate copy of this sales order or Buyer's acceptance of goods covered herein. Acceptance by Buyer of goods covered herein shall conclusively be deemed Buyer's acceptance of the terms and conditions on the front and back of this sales order. No additional or other terms shall be binding upon Seller unless accepted in a writing signed by Seller.
  2. Limited Warranty. Seller warrants, for a period of 30 days from the date of delivery to Buyer (the "Warranty Period") that the goods delivered hereunder are free from defects in material and workmanship under normal conditions of use and service. Seller's sole obligation under this warranty shall be, at its option, to either repair or replace the nonconforming goods without cost to Buyer. Seller shall not be obligated to repair or replace any goods unless Buyer notifies Seller of the defect during the Warranty Period or if the goods or any part thereof have been misused, abused or damaged (including damages by accident, fire or other casualty), used or installed contrary to Seller's instructions or modified or repaired without Seller's authorization. Repair or replacement pursuant to this warranty shall not renew or extend the Warranty Period, but any repaired or replaced goods shall be warranted for the balance of the original Warranty Period or 30 days, whichever is longer. Repair or replacement on the terms provided above shall be Buyer's sole remedy for any nonconforming goods delivered hereunder.

  6. Payment. Payment terms are net [thirty (30) days] after shipment unless otherwise stated on the front of Seller's invoice. Outstanding balances not paid when due shall be subject to a late charge accruing from the date of Seller's invoice at the rate of the lower of eighteen percent (18%) per annum or the maximum interest allowable under applicable state law on any late payments due hereunder. Failure to timely pay any Seller invoice shall cause all subsequent invoices to become immediately due and payable.
  7. Taxes and Fees. Prices stated herein do not include any taxes, charges, assessments or duties, and the amount of any thereof, which Seller is required to pay or collect shall be invoiced to Buyer. Buyer shall be responsible for and pay all such taxes, charges, assessments and duties arising by reason of this order.

Buyer shall be responsible for and pay all expenses paid or incurred by Seller in delivering the goods. Buyer shall be responsible for insuring the goods during shipment. Risk of loss of the goods shall pass to Buyer at the time the goods are tendered to such carrier.
  9. Cancellation; Modification; Suspension. Cancellation, modification, suspension or delay in shipment of Buyer's order shall not be accepted on terms which will not fully indemnify and reimburse Seller against loss; such indemnity to include recovery of all direct costs incurred, including normal indirect and overhead charges and a normal profit.
  10. Credit Approval. Shipments, deliveries and performances of work shall at all times be subject to the approval of Seller's credit department. Seller may at any time decline to make any shipment or delivery or perform any work except upon receipt of payment in advance or upon such other payment terms as are acceptable to Seller's credit department.
  11. Force Majeure.

Quantities so affected by any such circumstances may be reduced by Seller without liability, but this sales order shall otherwise remain unaffected.
  12. Waiver. The failure of Seller to insist in any one or more instances upon the performance of any of the terms, covenants or conditions of this sales order, or to exercise any right herein, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of any other terms or conditions of this sales order nor of the future performance of any term, covenant or condition or the future exercise of any rights herein.
  13. Assignment. Buyer shall not assign its right under this sales order or any interest herein without Seller's prior written consent.
